Levantine Hill Magnolia Style

We adored the results of Fluers and Story Time Weddings teaming up for Alex + Kane’s wedding at Levantine Hill. A beautiful combination of delicate roses, hydrangeas and orchids paired with rustic magnolia leaves, subtly complimenting the woods & metallic accents of Levantine Hill.

HOW TO: Achieve beautiful wedding photos - In The Detail

Wether you are having a local wedding or a destination wedding, there are many elements that combine to create beautiful wedding photos. Some of our fave elements include intimate moments, happy faces, a stress free environment, plenty of time, stunning destinations, natural light and last, but definitely not least -  down right gorgeous styling.

We fell completely in love with Donna's styling. So much thought and effort went into every detail. She didn't overload her accessories, but instead carefully selected quality items & brands based on style, colours & textures. An ivory based tone paired with soft pastel mauve featured throughout, from the flowers, to the shoes, to the perfume and even to the stunning wedding dress by Steven Khalil. Donna also put alot of thought into her preparation venue, including making sure she picked the hotel room with loads of natural light.

Pip + Adam - Wedding Menu Inspiration

Married at the quaint local church, followed by afternoon canapes & refreshments on the lush lawn of Cloverdel, a private estate in Woodend, Pip & Adam had everything from rain, rainbows & sunshine on their wedding day.

The groom himself is a wine maker & chef, so great food & wine was at the top of the list for Pip & Adam on their wedding day. So much thought & passion went into every little detail to make sure their guests had a beautiful evening indulging in culinary delights.  

'Adam and I chose our favourite food to serve. We also wanted to incorporate our own olive's & olive oil off our property and Adam's Salami which is made using 9litres of his Syrahmi wine.'  Says Pip.

Beautifully styled by the bride herself - Pip Danaher, the reception marquee looked absolutely incredible & set the perfect scene for a night of food, wine & dancing! 

 Chef Doug Elder from Brown Brothers, who recently received a chefs hat, lead the talented team from Artistic catering in creating their menu and meals. (see food & drinks menu below)

Renee (and her incredibly beautiful voice) from Tobi Music entertained guests throughout the ceremony, canapés and then joined the White Tree band for the reception.

Pip's gorgeous gown was by Cappellazzo Couture.
